    • decreased.
    • ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog – 1 st decreased.

    • PATTERN STITCHES:
    • K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (over an even number of sts)
    • Rnd 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
    • Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

    • Cable Pattern (multiple of 16 sts)
    • Rnds 1-6: *K8, p2, k4, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.
    • Rnd 7: *2/2 RC, 2/2 LC, p2, 2/2 LC, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.

    • NOTES:
    • Hat is worked in rnds beg at lower edge.
    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above). Cable pattern can be worked by following written instructions or Chart. When working from Chart, read all rnds of chart from right to left.
    • When knitting in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), sts need to be divided fairly evenly among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns being used. Simply divide the sts as evenly as possible. This will still create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.

    • DIRECTIONS:

    • With smaller double pointed needles, cast on 80 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 20 sts on each needle. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
    • Work in K1, p1 rib worked in rnds for 8 rnds.
    • Body
    • Change to larger double pointed needles.
    • Beg with Rnd 1, work in Cable pattern for 22 rnds.
